Strange hissing sound and smell comes from the monitor


Whenever you experience an unusual smell coming from anything electrical, always turn it off and/or disconnect it from any power source until you learn more about the problem. A fire can make make any problematic device seem suddenly unimportant.

An extremely common component in nearly any electronic device is a capacitor. The sizes vary from baby-tooth-sized to bowling-ball-sized found in the power box for most photography studios. The hissing sound is likely caused by one of these. The noisy capacitor may be going bad or another component or an electrical short may be causing it to get too much power. I've attached a video of what happens when capacitors get too much power.


An electrical short could also be causing both symptoms. If the smell is similar to burning organic matter, you likely have an insect (a crispy critter) that can be removed to remedy your problem. However, an electrical burn usually releases gases from burning rubber or plastic and has a distinctly different type of odor. If that's the smell and you are handy with a soldering iron, remove the cover to your monitor and look for signs of burning or overheating. Otherwise, the task should be left to an electronics shop for repair.

99 Dodge Grande Caravan the A/C blows hot air and a hissing sound under dash


Well the hissing sound could be a vac leak or the freon flowing thru the system.
Someone needs to check the freon charge in the system with a gauge and the electrical circuit to the compressor clutch.

My freezer is located in a garage that is staying hot in these 90 degree temps. I just heard a noise coming from it, looked and stuff was thawing. Husband unplugged and noise has stopped fills like cold...


I would first check to make sure the the condenser coils are free of debri and there is not something against the fan.

Did the noise sound electrical or mechanical or a hiss. A hiss is most likely a freon leak or a compressor blown (usually not worth repairing). A mechanical sound could be something blocking a moving part like a fan. Electrical could mean about anything.

I would check the condenser grill and then plug it back up and try to tell where the noise was coming from.

The freezer in my mini fridge started making a hissing sound today something stabbed the bottom of it whats going on is it safe to use ?


Hello,

From what you are saying the evaporator got punctured. The hissing was the freon coming out of the unit. The unit will not cool even if it was plugged in.

IF YOU PUNCTURED THE FREON LINE WOULD IT MAKE A NOISE


Normally you would hear a hissing noise like a gas leaking. If you were smoking it would smell kinda nice before the phosgene gas killed you. Freon turns into phosgene when near a heat source.

Flooding


I'm not sure if this is it but the hissing could be the air conditioner freon equalizing pressure in the orface tube...The flooding could be due to a bad fuel pressure regulator with a punctured diaphram ..it will cause fuel to be dumped in through the vacumn line into the intake manifold..regulator is on the fron of the engine near the top on the drivers side its round in shape and has a black plastic vacumn hose on it with a 90 degree rubber elbow on it, at the end of the fuel rail ..good luck hope you find it

SMALL OUTDOOR BEER REFRIGERATOR DOOR LEFT OPEN OVERNIGHT IT STARTED DEFROSOTNG AND THEN ACTED LIKE IT BULIT UP PRESSURE AND BLEW OUT AIR OR REFRIGERANT AND DOES NOT COOL ANYMORE


Hi, absolutely there's refrigerant (freon) leak check your condenser and evap. for rupture (broken lines) also check for oil, presence of oil means, refrigerant (freon) leak, plug ref, and listen, for hissing sound inside and outside of ref. try to locate leak, or call mechanic, repair leak, change filter drier and recharge, if your evap punctured, you should immediately disconnect ref, and dry all water from evap, prevent water from entering system, could damage compressor, or if water get into compressor, you will have to change compressor oil. yes, you surely have a refrigerant (freon) leak.good luck.
